For cupcakes;

> 2 cups all-purpose flour
> 2/3 cup cocoa powder
> 1 tsp baking soda
> 1/2 tsp salt
> 1 cup granulated sugar
> 1 cup vegetable oil
> 3 eggs
> 1 tsp vanilla extract
> 2/3 cup sour cream

For decorating;

> Wilton ® Chocolate or Strawberry Decorating Icing
> Wilton ® Sprinkles, if desired
> 6 oz Wilton ® Light Cocoa Candy Melts
> 24 fresh strawberries, for dipping
> Wilton ® Chocolate Brownie Dessert Drizzle

For cupcakes;

Preheat the oven 350°F. Prepare two muffin pans with baking cups.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, beat sugar and oil with an electric mixer until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla and mix well.
Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients alternately with sour cream, mixing until just combined. Divide the batter among the prepared pans, filling each cavity about 1/2 full.
Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool the cupcakes in their pans for 5 minutes. Remove to a cooling grid and cool completely.
Frost cupcakes. Garnish with sprinkles of your choice (if desired).

For chocolate-dipped strawberries;

Melt Candy Melts according to package directions.
Dip 24 strawberries in melted chocolate and place on parchment paper. Drizzle dipped strawberries with the remaining melted candy and chill until the candy sets.
Drizzle Wilton® Chocolate Brownie Dessert Drizzles as desired on cupcakes for additional topping option.
Top cupcakes with dipped strawberries immediately before serving.
